    I was not planned & was told

    if I were a boy I wouldn't be here today. Although being a girl didn't make my life oh so perfect either. Every girl grows up to realise their mother was the best friend they've always had. Not me. My life has been full of arguments and mental pain. I have always hid my...

    I Feel Like An Accident

    I've known I was an unplanned pregnancy for a long time now, and that my parents only stayed together because of me, but it was a loveless marriage and I think that's affected my out-look at relationships. However, last night I overheard my dad and his girlfriend (who I don...

    I Was An Unwanted Child

    This is an issue that has had a huge impact on my life and the lives of other people I have talked to who also know they were unwanted/unplanned children. It's not like parents go around telling us they never wanted us to be born (although some may), but in my experience...

    Mother Teresa

    Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. Mother Teresa

    My Mother Saw Me As "punishment"

    I was conceived in the back seat of a car to unmarried parents in the early 1960s. My mother, therefore, "had to get married" and since her marriage was never good (both my parents are very dysfunctional people), she pretty much blamed me for forcing her into it. From the day I...
